Islamic Lawfare

A very cool synopsis by this very hot lawyer, Brook Goldstein, of the concept of Islamic Lawfare at this site.

Extremely interesting interview. Goldstein is very well spoken on the topic and she points to aspects of the matter, particularly in the Canadian realm, that I was entirely unfamiliar with. I find it particularly frightening that the Canadian legal system allows for the subsidization of "legal jihadi" plaintiffs while forcing the defendents to cover their own bills. Completely unfair considering our basic right to freedom of speech. It was also pretty hilarious when she mentions the fact that many of these organizations are extremely critical of western institutions but are then able to turn around and use them to their own ends. I suppose many of the organizations in question are subscribers to the common saying "know your enemy." Almost admirable.
